It was a case of "Andrei who?" when he arrived from Shakhtar Donetsk in 1991 but he soon won a place in the hearts of countless fans with a string of brilliant performances as the Reds won two league titles and the FA Cup. Scoring United's last derby hat-trick against Manchester City, in November 1994, was another famous achievement.
However Andrei's departure for Everton in the summer of 1995 seemed abrupt, and in MUTV's hour-long documentary, he talks about some of the myths that have sprung up around his exit. He also looks back at some of his proudest moments in the red shirt, while former team-mates including Bryan Robson reflect on Andrei’s impact. This is his story, in his own words and it's only on MUTV.
When The Floodlights Fade: Andrei Kanchelskis will first be shown on MUTV at 17:30 BST on Sunday, with other chances to see it including 21:00 BST on Sunday.
